Life Story of Laura Dern

Laura Dern was born on February 10, 1967 in Los Angeles, the daughter of actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd. Dern was exposed to movie sets and the movie industry from infancy, and obtained several bit parts as a child. Her parents divorced when Dern was two and Dern lost contact with her father for several years as a result.

Her parents' background and her own early taste of the moviemaking world soon convinced the young Dern to pursue acting herself. Like so many young actors, her decision may have been influenced by social awkwardness -- the child of 60s counterculture parents, she was steeped in Eastern mysticism and political radicalism, and was seen as an oddball by her more conservative classmates. Her gawky physical appearance didn't help - even before her teens, she had achieved most of her impressive 5' 10" height, was rail-skinny (other than precociously wide hips), had huge feet and a slouching posture, and for all this was often teased by classmates. Perhaps the nine-year-old Dern found refuge by studying acting at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute.

The first success for the young Dern came in 1980, with a role in Adrian Lyne's Foxes (1980), a...

When she was cast in Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains (1982) at age 13, her mother Diane Ladd refused to let her go, feeling she was too young to leave home for a movie shoot. Laura sued for emancipation and won, but the movie was not a hit.

Seventeen years after she starred in Alexander Payne's first major film Citizen Ruth (1996), her father Bruce Dern starred in Payne's Nebraska (2013) -- probably one of the few, if only, times in movie history that a father-daughter duo similarly starred in the same director's films, especially with the actress/daughter's performance preceding her actor/father's.

Laura Dern and William Ragsdale in Bedrohliches Geflüster (1985)

Martin Scorsese was one of the first to encourage her to pursue acting. Scorsese directed Laura in an uncredited performance in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974), in which she ate an ice cream cone. The scene required to be taken 19 times and therefore she had to eat 19 cones in a row. When she managed through them all, without feeling sick and without any scene of resistance, director Scorsese said to her mother, Diane Ladd, "She has to be an actress".

Her character, Dr. Ellie Sattler, did not originally feature in the script for Jurassic Park III (2001). The character finally came aboard when her friend and former director Alexander Payne did the final rewrite of the script.

Was attached to a potential "Jurassic Park 4". In 2007, this was announced that Dern would reprise her role as Dr. Ellie Sattler for a third sequel to Jurassic Park (1993). She was the only person to be cast and was attached for several years, until the plans were scrapped and Jurassic World (2015) went into development instead.

David Lynch unsuccessfully pursued for her to receive an Oscar nomination for Inland Empire (2006), by managing an Oscar campaign, in which he solely stood on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, accompanied by a cow and FYC banner featuring a shot of Dern from the movie. However, Dern, who did not campaign herself, did not receive a nomination.

Was blacklisted by Hollywood for several years, following her guest spot on the "coming out" episodes of Ellen (1994), due to the embracing gay themes, that were controversial at the time. Oprah Winfrey also appeared in the episodes and revealed she got more hate mail about that minor appearance than she had ever gotten during her entire previous career as a talk-show host and actress.
